Using his personal collection of vinyl, Sean will share his favorite recordings representative of different styles and cultural origins of jazz music. During this informal listening tour, Sean will guide you through several pieces of music during which he’ll help you listen for and understand the melody, harmony, and  nuances that make jazz so unique.
